If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, since getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default as you might use an app that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you could secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
